Europe-wide direct and general cargo transport
We offer you scalable transport services in the categories Standard and Premium. With our Standard Logistics Service, we tend to the smooth shipment of your equipment with external, renowned forwarding companies or parcel service. Due to the close partnership, we can guarantee area-wide procurement and distribution of your goods throughout Europe. If required, you can book other value-added services, such as express services, telephone notification, higher insurance and much more.
As part of our Premium Logistics Service, delivery or collection is carried out with our in-house special logistics fleet to or from the point of use according to individual specifications and without loss of time. The fittings of our fleet include box bodies with electronic lifting platforms, heatable loading areas, tailor-made protection and restraint systems for securing loads, ensuring that even unpackaged products are safely on the road with us, air-sprung axles and stair climbing systems. Our trained drivers convince with their professional appearance and punctually take your products to the personally arranged appointment.
With us, there are no hidden costs, since payments for toll, diesel surcharge, insurance and much more are already included in the price for you. If desired, you can optionally book punctual delivery within 24 or 48 hours - even at weekends and on public holidays.
You are launching a rollout project? We are your one-stop partner for everything: from planning, through transport to the point of use, to a recorded delivering of the equipment on site, complete with brief instructions. Using our modern stair climbing systems, we can minimize the risk of stair transport and increase the safety of your equipment. We take back the packaging materials and do the disposal professionally.
We manage the preparation of all necessary import and export documents as well as the customs presentation. Your goods can be temporarily stored in our own bonded warehouse, untaxed and duty unpaid.

Event logistics for LG Electronics
For some years now, CDS has offered active support to the electronics manufacturer LG at various exhibitions, among them the annual ElectronicPartner Fair in Düsseldorf, the Expert Spring Conference in Hanover and the Euronics Congress in Leipzig. Prior to the start of the event, the East-Westphalian service provider ensures the on-time delivery of the devices right to the exhibition stand as well as their assembly and equipping. In order to guarantee the smooth running of the event, CDS experts are available at all times during the event to answer any technical questions.
After the successful conclusion of the event, CDS will handle the dismantling and return of the hardware. In doing so, all packaging materials that have already been used for the delivery and that have been safely stored after delivery of the equipment are used. Once returned to CDS, the products are being inspected, cleaned and stored properly and safely until their next use by experienced technicians.
Exhibition support for Makita Werkzeug GmbH
The first cooperation with the tool manufacturer Makita Werkzeug GmbH took place in 2018 - as part of a two-week nationwide roadshow. CDS supported the company with logistics and transport for this event, which was simultaneously taking place in three regions. The aim was to deliver tools from the entire product portfolio as well as various exhibition equipment to the respective locations on time and to collect them again after the end of the event.
In addition, the fleet had to fulfill special requirements for this project: On the one hand, the total weight to be transported posed a challenge; on the other hand, both the towing truck and trailers had to be equipped with a hydraulic lifting platform to ensure fast loading and unloading.
At that time, CDS sent three complete truck-trains, each weighing about 9 tons of payload, on a two-week journey. Thanks to the professional preparatory work and competent execution of the assignment, the roadshow went smoothly and to the complete satisfaction of our partner Makita Werkzeug GmbH. Thus, the first conjoint collaboration directly led to follow-up orders for the years 2019 and 2020.
